It wasn't Hanval the Claw as expected, sports fans, but the fair Madame U-Tana that took the challenge of fighting your champion last cycle. As in our previous bouts, she stood no chance. She at least parried one blow, but that was it. I'm thankful she survived the beating she took--my war hammer has a mind of its own at times-- but I have no desire to take life, having all ready done so. In previous issues of this rag I've written about my career that began twenty long years ago, and brought you up to this point. Now I'm delighted to report with this turn my personal trial comes to an end. If I merely survive the round, I will have achieved my goal at last, so says my lovely and talented manager, Medea (she wanted me to say that), who says she's figured out the formula for immortality. Yes, win, lose or draw I will be getting my invitation to the Isle, lands, a title, etc. and I so look forward to it. So, in this my next to last round who shall I meet? Will it be Ravana? Perhaps. I was surprised to see her take down my teammate, Shewish Horror last turn. She has earned the shot. We'll see; it matters not to me, for I am-- --Jakarta Fair Champion of Dayla Kiv 597, 598, 599 SPY REPORT Well, what are you looking at, DAYLA KIV? Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? Ah, shaddup and listen to my news. Later days, ARGONAUTS, since LAW DOGS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news. Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see PARSIFAL MOSAIC win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly. Tsk, tsk, SHEWISH HORROR beat KRENSHEW and KRENSHEW lost 11 points. You're breakin' my heart. And it's out with the old, in with the new, as RAVANA takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster. Heh, heh. The Crystal Wheel, humph! I've tasted better ale at mortuaries. Where do they get this stuff? From DAYLA KIV's trash dumps? My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start talking.' I loved that woman. What's the big D? ARGONAUTS was the most avoided team? Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse... And it looks like LAW DOGS avoided them the most this turn. What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me. Hmph. Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, TIOGAN CROW was this turn's most challenged warrior. Watch that ego swell, sports fans. Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, TIOGAN CROW was challenged by RUSTY SABITCH, who was ranked 26 points below him. Well, ok, the upstart knave (where've I heard that before?) won this match and gained 25 points to boot! Ha ha ha, TIOGAN CROW. Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals. I volunteer for DAYLA KIV's morgue. More variety. Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use. Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one. There's got to be a better place in DAYLA KIV to get a drink than The Crystal Wheel! Any suggestions? Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice! So nyaaah! I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME RAVANA 4589 8 1 0 109 WRATHMEN (544) CHALLENGER CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME TANE 4543 18 3 0 105 ARGONAUTS (542) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME JAKARTA FAIR 4544 15 5 1 83 ARGONAUTS (542) ARDIA LI 4600 9 2 0 75 SAND DANCERS (251) SHEWISH HORROR 4586 11 3 0 74 ARGONAUTS (542) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME PELDAN DJIAN 4579 13 9 0 55 SAND DANCERS (251) RUSTY SABITCH 4596 4 0 0 53 LAW DOGS (545) KRENSHEW 4601 7 3 0 51 SAND DANCERS (251) PARSIFAL MOSAIC 4607 4 1 0 50 ARGONAUTS (542) TIOGAN CROW 4580 11 11 1 45 SAND DANCERS (251) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME RED KOGAN 4540 8 19 0 43 SAND DANCERS (251) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME ATTICUS PINSCHER 4597 3 1 0 33 LAW DOGS (545) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME JACK MCCHOW 4595 4 0 0 23 LAW DOGS (545) PERRO MASON 4598 3 1 0 21 LAW DOGS (545) -ZED 'MIA'S SON' 4622 1 1 0 16 THE FIVE LIONS (549) -GREY THE LION KING 4620 1 0 0 9 THE FIVE LIONS (549) -MIA THE LIONESS 4623 1 0 0 6 THE FIVE LIONS (549) -MAYA 'LION'S BLADE 4624 0 2 0 2 THE FIVE LIONS (549) -ALISSA YOUNG LION 4621 0 1 0 1 THE FIVE LIONS (549) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.

Grats, though you could have taught me something! -- Perro Bunch of stand ins... Bah. Traveling Tinker -- My, oh, my! I hope you didn't drink any water after our fight. It would've leaked out of all those holes I cut into you. HAR, HAR. By the knots in my beard, I'm so funny. -- Tane Ravana -- What's a Master in decisiveness worth if I can't get the jump? Not much is my answer. -- Shewish Horror Mia the Lioness -- Time to look for a new job. Oy! -- I. Rex I feel so left out. Didn't mean to be last turn, but it kinda worked out. -- P. Mosaic Hanval the Claw -- They make stand-ins sign contracts on what armor to wear? Oh, the bureaucracy. Where's that stand-in lawyer when you need him? -- J. Fair; Your Champion. Madame U-Tana -- There's no getting at the knots in m'beard. It's a tangled mass of hair and things best left unsaid. And it's too close to m'face. I'm tired of parrying with my face. -- Tane Cowardly Cutpurse -- Cowering is in your contract? Good grief, does that contract state when you can eat, sleep, use the outhouse? How litigious is this place? -- P. Mosaic Happy 600th Birthday Dayla Kiv Arena -- Medea and the Argonauts ROAR! Sorry, got excited! I am Emmra Alagorn, Daughter of Lions and newly appointed manager of the five Lions. 3 wins, 4 losses, not bad but next time, Grey the Lion King, a little more excitement will be much appreciated. As for the other fighters, not just mine but you all did great. -- Emmra Alagorn Urgh! Agah you beat me again. Jack McChow, it's official, I can't best you nor do I hate you but instead, congrats the better warrior. -- Maya, Lion's Blade warrior of the Five Lions Do we get a prize, or at least a party, for still being here on turn six hundred? -- Arenamaster Dernal and the Regular Crew Huh, correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like three out of sixteen fights did NOT involve standbys? We're going to demand bonus pay. -- Arenamaster Dernal Tane -- You do? Well, it's too bad you aren't female, but still, we might have a brew together. -- Pelis the Old OKAY! Five and oh against the standbys! Doesn't matter that all we fought were standbys, we did GOOD here. -- the Sand Dancers Shewish Horror -- Of course not. If we stick around long enough--and we do, generally--we ACCUMULATE tough. -- Peldan Djian LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS INTANGIBLE REX was dealt death by TALL SHARO-SKA in a 1 minute Dark Arena fight.
